to earlier between how science deals with this question and how lawyers deal with this question is that you actually get a fundamental disconnect between the two systems. so you mentioned that lack of emotional control or lack of ability to control your preferences might lead to insanity, but, in fact, in most jurisdictions as you know, that's not true. after hanky was acquitted under the american law institute test because he could not control his behavior, congress in most state jurisdictions changed the law, got rid of the lack of emotional test, the a.l.i. test and now in most jurisdictions, the nontest requires that you demonstrate that you can't distinguish right from wrong. so now we have, and again, the law uses science for the law's own purposes, but what is problematic here is the disconnect. from the criminal side, if you lack emotional control, you go to prison because you can't win under the test because the test doesn't apply. when you walk out of prison and you lack emotional control, you get civilly committed. so what we have is a fundamental disconnect between how we view p

from failure, they really get thrown off. >> this is not rocket science. i have said many times that what some kids lack is exposure. let me be frank. the kids of the white elite have access to exposure. like the old kodak film, kids are like that. all they need is a little exposure. once they get exposed, the picture comes into view for them. curiosity has to be with living in an environment where you get exposed and your curiosity grows and you can channel that sort of curiosity. the kids that succeed are curious because that curiosity is encouraged. >> i take your point, but i think it goes beyond simple economics, kids can be curious about a couple of blocks. you don't need complicated toys to be curious. to me, it is much more about the environment. there are lots of parents that are encouraging their kids ask questions. that is what built curiosity more than anything else. tavis: no matter how carias i might be, if my situation means i never get outside of these blocks, how does curiosity get for the rest? >> i think there is no question that there are different opportunit

i am going to use is if you walk into a christian science church or christian science reading room in any town or city of the united states, conventionality exudes from it, it just fits that conventional american protestant type mode. but over issues of healing for instance, when, from healing through prayer, when someone dies or some issue has been raised in the courts, that tends to push them along the continuum at least into a middle ground, and in some cases where there has been some severe conflicts and some convictions, particularly involving children it can push them in there, so there is a lot of movement here. also let's not just think about the united states, so that's primarily what we are looking at. you go to cities of los angeles and there is a buddhist temple of one sort or another in just about every other corner next to your episcopalian and methodist church. so buddhism in los angeles is taking on a much more conventional status where as if they-- well for instance, to flip my examples here, but there are enough muslims in macomb to actually build a mosque and the
